7.6.7.6.7.6.7.6.


1
O SPIRIT of adoption,
To sonship's joyful cry
By Thee we give expression,
God's heart to gratify.
Through Christ by Thee we've access
Unto the Father nigh;
To serve in holy nearness,
His Name to magnify.
2
Blest Spirit of the Father,
Thou in the inner man
Dost strengthen us with power,
The realms of bliss to scan;
To know Christ's love which passes
The range of human ken:
Be filled to all God's fulness -
What blessedness for men!
